Flyte release "Faithless" Video in collaboration with Canada. Tour Dates, Debut Album "The Loved Ones" out now

Never the kind of band to act in uncertain haste when it comes to their music, each song off Flyte's debut album The Loved Ones feels like something to relish, to mull over, with a deeper, unfolding resonance. The same goes for their visual identity, and following the release of their critically lauded debut album, Flyte reveal the 'Faithless' video, a remarkable collaboration with Femke Huurdeman and CANADA (Tame Impala, Beck), the only band to work consecutively with the legendary production company. Flyte have also spent the last month supporting Lemon Twigs on tour, concluding at Kentish Town Forum, and will play at Communions Christmas Party at Notting Hill Arts Club on December 3, as well as supporting Lord Huron on their European tour early next year. 

"It felt great to go back and work with Canada for a second time. We knew the 'Holy Mountain' and 'Paris, Texas' references were going to lead to something grandiose, and the director Femke's visual influences were spookily in sync with ours. Zoe - who played the girl - was hyper intelligent and totally got what we were going for. The African Raven was also a magnificent thing to behold in the flesh," says Flyte.

Flyte separately admit that as early as age ten, a career in music was their only ambition. Drummer Jon Supran and bassist Nick Hill met guitarist Will Taylor at their local comprehensive school, where Will's parents both taught English. They later came upon keys player Sam Berridge busking at Tottenham Court Road station after moving to Hackney in their late teens. Accomplished songwriters who quickly earned a reputation for their trademark vocal arrangements and live show, the band released a flurry of alternative singles before pairing up with Courtney Barnett producer Burke Reid to create their first full length record. The Loved Ones is the result of years of enlightenment and friendship.

Norwegian pop sensation Sigrid releases new single "Strangers", 2018 tour dates including Shepherds Bush Empire Headline and gives her vocals on Justice League motion picture

In the past nine months Sigrid has gone from unknown to one of the most exceptional breakout artists of 2017. Sigrid’s rise has been unrivalled; from releasing her acclaimed debut Don’t Kill My Vibe EP, which has amassed over 100M global streams - to playing Hoxton Kitchen, two sold-out Scala’s and announcing a Shepherds Bush Empire headline all in less than a year. Now Sigrid releases the mighty ‘Strangers’, produced by Martin Sjolie, the dream pairing behind ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’. With lyrics of steel, meandering melodies and stark honesty, ‘Strangers’ embodies the natural, sincere talent Sigrid has become renowned for. At only 21-years-old, the Norwegian pop sensation also gives her vocals to the epic action adventure Justice League, with a powerful, haunting take on Leonard Cohen’s ‘Everybody Knows’, available now.

From the tiny town of Γ…lesund in Norway, which sits at the entrance of a UNESCO-protected fjord surrounded by sea and mountains, Sigrid has been quietly creating a world which emboldens her followers, displaying outstanding song writing ability with hard-hitting and empowering words, laced over unexpected and daring melodies. Gracing almost every festival stage this summer, Sigrid has been dotted across the globe, from the furthest edges of Norway, to Iceland and the US, with a stand out performance at Glastonbury. From Latitude, Wilderness, Lollapalooza and last weekend Pitchfork Paris, the constant has been masses of crowds, building with each new performance, to the point where Roskilde Festival had to upgrade the stage size as over five thousand people clicked attending on the festival app.
With 2M monthly Spotify listeners, a critically acclaimed debut EP, two Radio 1 B Listed singles, and being chosen as Apple’s Up Next Artist, it’s hard to believe Sigrid has only been in the public sphere since February. 2018 is waiting.

Jesse Porsches Releases New Single 'Say It To Me' via Republic/Island Records

Up-and-coming Sydney DJ and producer Jesse Porsches today releases a brand-new, dance pop jam titled 'Say It To Me' via Dew Process / Universal Music Australia.

The track was co-written by Jesse and long-time friend and partner-in-crime Holly Martin aka Brasska who also lends her glorious and silky-smooth vocals to the glimmering tune which will have you yearning for the dancefloor.


Speaking about the track, Jesse reveals its conception just clicked into place "I originally wrote the beat and instantly thought Brasska would kill it, we sat down and wrote the song in a day and turned the whole thing around really quickly. We had written a bunch of demo's over the last 12 months and "Say It To Me" was the first one that stood out to me."

"Say It To Me" explores the concept of being in a relationship and a knowing that the other person isn't emotionally invested in it. It's about being open and honest and owning up to the idea that if it's not working, it's better to be real and say goodbye!!"

Collaboration has been key to the creative process and success for Jesse Porsches, after co-producing the track 'Sleepless,' the debut single by the one-and-only Flume, Jesse started his first duo Porsches in 2015 with Carl Fox, penning the breakthrough hit 'Horses'. Porsches went on to tour nationally, both as a live band and as DJs, performing alongside superstars like Skepta, Tkay Maidza, Booka Shade and Tensnake.

2017 saw the launch of his second duo, Super Cruel, a dual producer project with Adelaide's Tigerilla. Their first release 'November', featuring the inimitable vocals of Lisa Mitchell, instantly gained traction across national Australian radio and international streaming services online – further reinforcing Jesse's reputation as having a Midas touch. The duo performed at this year's Splendour In The Grass

In July this year, Jesse stepped into the spotlight as a solo artist in his own right with his summery dancefloor anthem 'The Weekend', featuring vocals from Australian singer-songwriter Xavier Dunn. The track has gone on to receive praise from industry and tastemakers alike with the likes of Pilerats declaring of the video "Jesse Porsches' new clip will make you pray for summer's return."

Jesse Porsches  Releases New Single 'Say It To Me'

"The Weekend" is an uplifting gem sprawling with a playful guitar hook, simple synth melodies and a festival-ready drop. Jesse Porsches is on an absolute roll and with a tonne of material up his sleeve, we can't see it ending anytime soon." – Best Before

"The track screams of both sunshine and moonlight, of both fun and forlorn, and Jesse Porsches has proven once again that even the most disparate elements can intertwine beautifully, even if it is just for the weekend." – Purple Sneakers

"...if you've been looking for that perfect weekend pump song, then these boys have just what you need with their glimmering dance-pop beats and infectious sing-along croons." – Acid Stag
